The Marshall County Barn Quilt Trail

“Pine Tree” barn quilt mural in Bremen, IN

Started in 2001 by an Ohio woman, to honor of her mother’s Appalachian, quilting heritage, barn quilting is a new tradition whose appeal is reflected in The Marshall County Barn Quilt Trail.

And what, do you ask, is a barn quilt?

A barn quilt is a square board, usually somewhere in the range of 4 to 8 feet in width, decorated to resemble a quilt block and hung on the exterior of a barn or other type building. Real, cloth quilts are made up of many of these blocks of color but barn quilts typically feature only one block.

Visit the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana

The very first Studebaker automobile was produced in 1902 – and was electric! It was another two years before the company manufactured their first gasoline model but they continued to make and sell both horse drawn and self-propelled vehicles until 1920.
